The Year of the Horse - Intrepid and Energetic!
A strong, energetic and dynamic horse represents the Chinese Lunar Zodiac Year of the Horse ably.Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month.

In 2014 we celebrate the Year of the Horse. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Horse (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and 2014) are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. Horse people are active and energetic. They have plenty of charisma and know appeal to others (especially others of the opposite sex). Horses are joiners who love to be part of the group, meaning that is why they can usually be seen at such occasions like concerts, theaters, meetings, sporting events, and of course, parties.

People born during the Year of the Horse have a pleasant, amiable, easy going disposition which guarantees popularity and a large following of friends. Blessed with good humor and geniality, they are extremely easy to get along with, for they have the knack of instantly putting people at their ease.

A strong, energetic and dynamic horse represents the Chinese Lunar Zodiac Year of the Horse ably.The Horse is very quick-witted and insightful. S/he is right in there with you before you have even had the chance to finish what you are saying: s/he's on the thought in your mind even before you've expressed it! The Horse can be hot-blooded, hot-headed and impatient. The Horse is a worker, adepts at handling money and a good financier. But unfortunately, s/he is also famous for suddenly losing interest in a project.

Those born a Horse have many contradictions in character. Horses are proud yet sweet-natured, arrogant yet oddly modest in their approach to love, envious but tolerant, conceited yet humble. They want to belong, yet they are burdened by their need for independence. They need love and crave intimacy yet often feel cornered or pressured. But the truth is, the Horse is an individual, who depends only on its wits and his labor to get what it wants!

Niue
Niue is a small island nation in the South Pacific. Although it is completely self-governing and independent, it remains in free association with New Zealand, a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations, hence the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its coinage. The country is located about 1,450 miles northeast of New Zealand. It is closest to Samoa, Tonga, and the Cook Islands. It is one of the largest coral islands in the world, with a total area of 260 square kilometers. Niueans are predominantly Polynesian; most are bilingual, speaking both Niuean and English.
